Q: Does prom feel like it seems in the movies?
A: “Ooh, umm, I guess. Yeah, a little bit. I kinda feel a little bit like a princess, not gonna lie. But it’s also a lot more tiring and expensive than it is in the movies. I agree with that whole statement. It was fun, we did the dinner, we did the pictures, but our feet hurt. That’s where we are.”

Q: How did you get ready for prom?
A:“Put our clothes on. Yeah, just one shoe at a time like everyone else, man. First I put the pants on, then I tucked in my shirt, then the vest, then the suit-jacket… You put your pants on first? Scratch that. Underwear first. Yeah, and then socks. And then everything else followed.”
